Bioinspired robotics class offers intriguing surprises
Bioinspired robotics class offers intriguing surprises
Students learn about the complexity behind simple, everyday movement before experimenting with mechanical models. When MIT's mini cheetah perfectly executed a backflip on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," the audience screamed and applauded wildly. If this machine - which also pranced around the stage like a show dog and stretched in several different directions - could perform such a difficult maneuver, one that is impossible for most humans, it should be easy to get it to perform all kinds of everyday tasks.

UW researchers will trial gene editing therapy to treat blindness
With new support from the National Institutes of Health, a team of researchers at the Wisconsin Institute of Discovery will lead drug therapeutics testing for two diseases known to cause blindness. Over the next five years, the collaborative project will use the $29 million NIH grant to merge new drug delivery systems with advanced genome CRISPR technology, innovating new treatments for Best Disease (BD) and Leber Congenital Amaurosis (LCA), both of which are currently untreatable hereditary diseases.

Climate-stressed trees get a boost from new microbial partnerships
Climate-stressed trees get a boost from new microbial partnerships
Climate change is subjecting plants to rapid shifts in temperature and precipitation, pushing them into new ranges and stressing them in old ones. Trees may have an easier time adapting in both cases by making new microbial friends underground, according to new research from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Exploring the links between diet and cancer
Exploring the links between diet and cancer
Omer Yilmaz's work on how diet influences intestinal stem cells could lead to new ways to treat or prevent gastrointestinal cancers. Every three to five days, all of the cells lining the human intestine are replaced. That constant replenishment of cells helps the intestinal lining withstand the damage caused by food passing through the digestive tract.

3 Questions: Sara Prescott on the brain-body connection
New MIT faculty member investigates how sensory input from within the body controls mammalian physiology and behavior. Many of our body's most important functions occur without our conscious knowledge, such as digestion, heartbeat, and breathing. These vital functions depend on the signals generated by the "interoceptive nervous system," which enables the brain to monitor our internal organs and trigger responses that sometimes save our lives.
